We thank Akilen and colleagues for their considered comments on our systematic review and meta-analysis [1]. Firstly; we would like to clarify our position regarding the coumarin content of Cinnamomum aromaticum (cassia cinnamon), as opposed to Cinnamomum zeylanicum, based on the literature that is currently available. According to the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment, 1 kg of Cinnamon cassia powder contains approximately 2.1-4.4 g of coumarin, which means one teaspoon of C. cassia powder would contain approximately 5.8-12.1 mg of coumarin [2]. © 2013 The Authors.
